The rpubl:can literary bureau is very
active now in sending oat campaign
material and documents that will greatly
ist in tne cause.
Altiiou,h the democrati seem to take
a very hopeful view of the outcome of the
campaign, in anticipation of the expected
futiion of the anti-republiian forces,
there are n signs of discouragement
among repub'icnn", although it is ad
mitted that the fight is to be a hard one
and will require steady, conscientious
and unceasing efforts on the part of the
Dictatob Brjan fajs tie is willing that
all thoee who have njoyed any of the
blessings of renewed prosperity during
the patt four j ears should vote the re
publican ticket this fall. If Mr. Bryan
was honest, which be never is politically,
he would vote the republican ticket, as
he has prospered during the last four
jears as he never prospered before dur
ing all his life.
Bbvas has been nominated on a plat
form specifically declaring for free silver
at 16 to 1. In fact he declined to
run on any other platform. This showi
that he is not a good judge of the trend
of public opinion. Free silver is dead
and that plunk will cost many votes for
Bryan. The shrewd men of the party
tried to push anti-expansion to the front
as the leading plank. That plank in
sures the entire electroal vote of the
coast to McKinley. The coast is for ex
pansion, and for it strong.
Tub democratic clatform is cunningly
devised scheme to catch the unwary
and unthinking voters. The most
labored effort of their document wan to
cr-ate a rlilTi-rence between expansion
and imperiuliHm. It is rather amusing
to note thtii lii,e of demarcation; they
apparently rely upon the constitutional
uecuoii iu ebiauiibii mat (inierence as
to whether the Hag follows the constitu
tion or the constitution follows the flag.
The republican party can and will meet
them on their own hypothesis. In re
gard to the free silver plank, the lepubli
cans see victory ahead by their big
blunder, while one-half democracy

Wit somewhat of a local question with
the people of that state, but the financial
q lestion was settled in lS'.-C, and I don't
tee any tense in harping on the same old
string now. Bryan continue to prate
about bard timet in the face of the moat
prosperous timea the Nation ever taw.
Money never wat to abundant or cheap
ai now, in this country, and there it
work for everybody at fair wages. I
notice some kick tgainst McKinley on
account of bis being a "weak" president,
but we hid a strongman in Cleveland
who vetoed nearly every important
measure. The kickers of the present
want a boss, and if Bryan is elected they
will have one sure enough. McKinley
does not fly in the face of congress, but
permits that body to have its wty, as it
rennoyer t'ounela Itrymn.
Sylvester Pennoyer I tm pleased with
the nomination of Mr. Stevenson for
rice-president. The democrats at Kan
sas City followed the precedent of the
republicans in the Philadelphia conven
tion, by putting their strongest and
ablest man at the tail of the ticket. We
will elect the ticket if Bryan will only
keep still and let "Teddy" do tbe talking.
Strange Action fur Drmocrat.
Benton Killen I am profoundly aston
ished that men calling themselves Dem
ocrats should declare in favor of giving
Porto Rico and the Philippines up to
dark races. It was the effort and at
tempt to turn a part of this country over
to the control of the black man that
made me a democrat. II there had been
nothing more offensive in the platform
than the declaration for free coinage of
silver I might have been willing to sup
port it. This Is but a pausing folly,
which willl right itself In time, and
which is not treasonable. But the idea
that a party that was once the democra
tic party, should desire to give up our
possessions to a lot of ignorant and half
savage blacks is too mnch for me. At
far as the ticket goes, it is consistent
with the theories set forth In the plat
No It r a (on for Changing Back. j
C. A. Cogswell I was opposed to
every plank in the Chicago platform.
The democrats have reaffirmed that
platform, and have several other objec
tionable planks, especially that opposing
expansion. I see no reaion why a man
who refused to support Bryan and Bewail
in 1896 should support Bryan and SteV'
the water that went over tho mill wheel
a month ago you can't bring It back.
What could Bryan do anyhow? It would
bo neceseary for him to have rongreea
with him to do anything for tho tilver
raii4o. and would probably take eight
yeart to get a complete change iu con-grea.

Fred R. Strong I'm disgusted at the
continual howl for 16 to l.and I'm out of
pjlitics. Did not read the platform and
don't care who they nominate. Am a
republican because I cannot be otherwise.
Thomas N. Strong The Kansas City
convention made a fatal mistake in de
claring against imperialism, as the
tending "something juat at good." The
results have, in a modest way, been
gratifying, more a indicative of poi
bilitiet than of that which hat actual. y
In K9 the foreign trade ol China
amounted to tt3o,lS9,300, which wat a
gain of H'.,O0O,0OO over lH'.H, and more
than double the total of lA'.aJ. Tint
thowt plainly enough tint ttte field it
being exploited. Chtna't import in
im were, roundly fl'AOOO.OOO against
export! of fl -13,000,01 ). The increae of
imports included cotton products, hard
ware, machinery, oil, opium, and sua-
dries. The United Statet got no part of
the increase in oil, but loit. China ex
ported ot tea, silk, hides, wrxd, and
beans more than ever before. The value
of the silk was f'M.000,000 and of the tea
$19,3.r)S,000. It shipped 3U,0iO,(iO
pound of cotton, rice, matting, tobacco,
and hides, wool, and beana more than
ever before. The value of the silk Wat
$110,000,000 and the tea $19 3.'.8,0(!0. It
shipped 30,000,000 pounds of cotton, rice,
matting, tobacco, and hides from Mon
golia and Thibet. Some of the hides,
purporting to be wolf-nkin, came from
the common dog, but still the supply
fjym cattle and sheep it practically inexhaustible.
Statistics at to the carriage of Chinese
commerce afford a curious ttudy. Dur
ing 1S99.63.41S vess Is cleared from
treaty ports; of these, 23,330, with ton
mge of 8,044,81'J, to China; 3,712 tot.
nage 2,8.'i9,741, to Japan; 2,078, tonnage,
1,854,240, to Germany. After these
came France, Sweden and Norway,
Russia, and then the United States with
716 ships of 310, 107 tons. In other w ords,
the United States is not within hailing
dirttance of its legitimate rank, although
the record for 1890 makes a comparative
Biiowing tuat Is encouraging. Iti
Chinese commerce reached lant year an
Bgregate of $32,000,000, almost equally
divided between Imports and exports.
Between the Philippines and China
there was barter only to the extent of
$30,000, but under Spanish rule and
peace thete figures had uevr gone above
fiio.UOO. imports from the United
States to China during 1899 were $4,147,-
702 greater than they had been In 1898,
almost equal to the increase of Great
Britain, which was $4,072,10; but the
total for England was $28,930,083, where
as that of the United was $10,039,041,
The apparent gain of the United States
should have teen much greater, for large
quantities of American goods are shipped
to London, and go thence to China under
the English flag. Consul Fowler re
cently noticed, among other goods, 80
barrels of nails from New York, cases of
cigarettes from Richmond
